that medicaid funding in obamacare. tell me what you are looking for. guest: we are looking for $20 billion in advance medicaid funding. that is the amount of cuts to the defense budget for the sequester. it is just initial discussions. at the end of the day obama care is not working well. the website will eventually get up and running at the end of the day. those kind of problems will continue no matter what happens on the budget discussion. our other republicans of your mindset or with many of them tried to do what we saw a few months ago? guest: the sequester is the big issue. that was small budget costs -- what it cuts. -- budget cuts. if we can maintain those cuts, that is a step in the right direction and if we can do something about rolling back obama care, we will see some progress. there are enrollment error stories, talking about the number signing up. what are your concerns on the technical aspect of the website? guest: it is not a failed website, it is a failed health care approach. can washington improve our health care system? they are welcome to. are the white house as they o
: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, since obamacare implementation began on october 1, the president has spent much f his time talking about the malfunctioning website. however, i would remind the president of his own words several weeks ago. obamacare is more than just a website. the website was supposed to be the easy part. and the more people sign on to it, they will be made aware of the real problems with obamacare. in fact, when the millions of americans currently losing their health care plans try to log on will be care.gov, they met with drastically increased emiums, skyrocketing out-of-pocket cost, and reduced access to the doctors and hospitals they know. these problems are in direct contrast to the repeated promises made by the president. my constituents are rightly concerned with these broken promises and they are regularly contacting me and my office to voice their concerns. for instance, gillian in sparta, tennessee, wrote to me, and i quote, every year in the past my health care insurance has increased by small percentages. sometimes 5%, sometimes by 7%. this past week
jobs and the economy. the two are undeniably linked. obamacare, its unfunded mandates, broken policy incentives and tax penalty structure is exacerbating the crisis of unemployment in this country. my constituent, sandy from winston-salem, knows this firsthand. she contacted me to share how obamacare is impacting adjunct professors in north carolina community colleges. she said, our hours have been cut because of the unaffordable health care act. this legislation is the worst thing that could have happened to the average american. her story isn't unique. stories abound of community colleges working to figure out how they will manage to comply with obamacare's costly employer mandate. for some it means cutting part-time employee hours which shortchanges both workers and students. americans care about health care and they care about jobs. obamacare is the wrong solution for both. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? mr. poe: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks.
stopped the enforcement of mandatory sentencing and parts of obamacare. the benghazi issue. the irs issue. how many more things you think have to occur, thinking that a prosecutor, one of those is not enough evidence. two of those, in and of themselves, is not enough evidence. the violations that i see and have just listed, i think, is enough evidence to ask questions . where do you draw the lines and what i have recited as enough evidence to start asking questions about the president >> first ofs power? all, congressman, i cannot address all of the -- all of the -- the things that you have raised. many of those things, let's be honest about it, are honest disagreements about policy or how to interpret the law. but your interpretation of the law is -- you are saying that you do not agree with how i interpret the law and you say i am wrong. sentence,sh my raising the specter of some kind of grotesque residential authority,f unwanted it is not based on fact. mr. cantor believed that his interpretation of the law would sink obamacare, in his view, is correct. or, i guess he does. the preside
undermining the rule of law that is at the center of our constitutional design. from obamacare to immigration, the current omission is picking and choosing which laws to enforce. it is a bedrock principle. the president must faithfully execute the act of congress. the president cannot enforce the law simply because he dislikes it. the obama administration has been equally asserted in the round of domestic policy routinely making and runs around congress through broad claims. limits. president obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore and enacted law simply because he disagrees with it. in place of the checks and balances established by the constitution, president obama has proclaimed that "i refuse to take no for an answer." and "where congress won't act, i will." throughout the obama presidency, we have seen a pattern. president obama circumvents congress when he does not get his way. for instance, while congress is currently debating how to reform our immigration laws, the president effectively and acted the dream act himself by ordering immigration officials to stop enforc
is at the center of our constitutional design. ,rom obamacare to immigration the current administration is picking and choosing which laws to enforce. conferstitution does not on the president the executive authority to disregard the powersion of unilaterally waiting, suspending or revising the laws. it is a bedrock principle of constitutional law that the president must faithfully execute acts of congress. the president cannot refuse to enforce a law simply because he disliked it. presidents have from time to time a blog claims of executive power. authority have traditionally been limited to the area in which presidential strongest -- their foreign affairs. the obama administration has assertive in the realm of the next six policy -- domestic policy. regulatory actions that bush executive power beyond all limits. obama is the first president since richard nixon to ignore and enacted law simply because he disagrees with it. in place of the checks and balances established by the constitution, president obama that "i refuse to take no for an answer."

. >> louisianians are struggling because of obamacare. she recently told reporters, "i am not concerned for anything." she cast the deciding vote for obama care in the first place. it is the brave new world of government incompetence that we will live in. guest: the last line for that is interesting because that is new. the brave new world of government incompetence. that is something the launch of the obamacare website has over republicans. up to it is no longer it is better for you. -- the government is better for you. these guys are incompetent buffoons. it is a attack that could have some resonance. obama had problems with the nsa, spying, leaks, the problem of the health-care website that does not work, he looks like the government is having difficulty operating. in -- and now he says the democratic senators are wrong on governing. that is intriguing to me. i'm a government junkie, so maybe it is less intriguing to other people. host: let me share this. president obama is making a big comeback if only he could get the news out to millions of homeless. guest: every time we have a conversation ab
with president obama blank suspension of obamacare. of course i agree with mr. lazarus. they are not the same as obamacare. but what is striking about the comparison is that president lincoln welcomed the involvement of congress. welcome to the congress to ratify what he had done to pass the statute justify eating. he was concerned that they had overstepped the constitutional authority and welcom welcomed cs ratification of its action. president obama by contrast actually threatened to veto the statute that would have ratified his action. in fact i think is a startling contrast i was trying to bring out in that op-ed. .. they have offered despite two years of people like me raising this issue with the irs is trying to do is illegal. they have yet to offer one shred of, when statutory provision or one shred of evidence that supports their claim that the statute authorizes tax credit through exchanges of established by the federal government under section 1321 or that it was congresses intent for the statute to authorize tax credit through those exchanges. so there's a lot more to be said about
not demonstrated its expertise or a willingness consider what effect obamacare is going to have on the health of this country. host: on twitter -- referring to senator mary landrieu who is up for reelection. been in clarksburg, west virginia. it democrat. you.r: good morning to i will tell you the truth. yeah, you want to fire someone. the house.get rid of when people don't do their jobs -- you want to fire somebody for not doing their job? these characters who always want to know about benghazi. tell me the truth about iraq. host: robert lambert on twitter. jerry, independent caller. texas. why are we complicating things? infighting. let's sit down and have discussions and work things out. quit pointing fingers. things.he complications i don't care what happened in in 2013.use we are how are we going to progress? how are we going to move forward if all we're doing is debating? argumentt about the , the formerrt gibbs press secretary to the white in order tog that restore people's trust in , the presidentn has to hold somebody accountable. caller: the only message that sent is that congress i
to win. >> i am bringing it on home with the last two questions. what are your thoughts on obamacare? too many questions. i had to ask you three. >> i may need a couple hours. it is unraveling on its own effects. i was telling jonathan that i think it is not that government is inherently stupid, although that is a debatable point. it is that they do not get the right incentives. the business would be run this way because you would be run out of business immediately. we have put into law perverse incentives. people who had cheap insurance no longer can buy that. it is what they could afford and that is the only way they had it. i was one of them. i used to have family coverage for five people, for $5,000. a $5,000 deductible. in obamacare, you can have a higher detectable and still pay $20,000 because there is a mandate built into it. the problem is the insurance company is never going to offer those policies again because they are told within a year, if you delay it for year, then in a year everyone will be forced to buy the new policies, which are more expensive. let's say you sell bread
good. on your first question about obamacare, the best thing to happen to obamacare was the government shutdown. i remember asking a guy who was defending it about two and a half weeks in when we finally started talking about the website and all the problems -- remember there were glitches. i said when can we start calling these glitches a debacle? he said by the middle of november if the website is not finished. today is november 19. it is a tremendous debacle. it's not just the website. it's incredible that the greatest country in the world has spent hundreds of millions of dollars loving a website, -- building a website, and the thing doesn't work. i am tired of hearing excuses that it is going to work by november 30, when it likely is not. there is more than the website. the website is the least of their problems. it is perhaps most embarrassing. in life you get one chance to make a first impression. that is the first impression you made. we are seeing democrats like diane feinstein getting behind efforts on policy, on issues like the cancellation of policies, and that isn't going
're going to talking about obamacare until it starts working. host: yesterday on abc this week , republican congressman tom cole came in to talk about congress is to do list. guest: we stumbled into one before that i don't think is wise and didn't occur. the line i usually use is, around every cat walk and chew gum. let's just to come for a while. right now chewing gum is getting a budget deal and make sure we don't default on the debt ceiling comes around. tom cole, republican of oklahoma talking about the to do we are alsoress. getting your thoughts on this congress on track to be the least productive congress. charles is up next on our line for democrats from raleigh, north carolina. i agree with the last caller. all this was to stop obama from being a good president. republicans are hypocritical. men outto throw these of office. we had the worst speaker of the house ever. they spent all this time trying to stop the health-care law which they are not going to stop. we need a jobs bill passed. we need to pass immigration and work on infrastructure. there are a lot of things that could be
of obamacare. reporters, "iold am not concerned for anything." forcast the deciding vote obama care in the first place. it is the brave new world of government incompetence that we will live in. line for that is interesting because that is new. the brave new world of government incompetence. that is something the launch of the obamacare website has over -- website hasup opened up for republicans. it is no longer it is better for you. -- the government is better for you. these guys are incompetent buffoons. problems with the nsa, spying, leaks, the problem of the health-care website that does not work, he looks like the government is having difficulty operating. -- and now he says the democratic senators are wrong on governing. that is intriguing to me. clough let me share you this stock. president obama is making a big comeback if only he could get the news out to millions of homeless. guest: every time we have a conversation about on employment numbers, it is the same. it is a question of whether you are in power or out of power. out of power, unemployment goes up, proving america
. host: we read this editorial from the wall street journal today. obamacare mission accomplished. i will not go it -- go through it again for our viewers. this briefing, did you get that sense? it was not, because they get a huge emphasis on, we still have a lot of work to do, this is by no means a perfect system, we have got it to where we wanted, but there are still a lot of things that need to be fixed. this is still an ongoing process to make this thing work better and better. they still it knowledge there are a lot of parts of the website they need to continue to work on. saying, yes, we did it, everything is great, and we will take off now. what is the measure success to look at? guest: insurance companies, are they getting the accurate information they need in order to enroll people and give them their coverage, receive the payments from those getting subsidies, and that will be -- starting january 1, how many people will actually have insurance under this law, how may people are successful going to the doctor and paying the bills, insurance companies getting copayments and a
is better than closed things. bottom-up is better than top- down. to connect in their world -- obamacare didn't fail because, hey, they just didn't happen to do this right. it failed because of the same reason that other stuff fail. it is old. it is top-down. it is factory. our principles are always fresh and new ideas if we just become about them in ways that say, hey, our principles are good for more than just saying no. we have a way to better organize society, solve problems, open school system, where parents get to actually choose the best school for their kids and you go get trapped in a failing school. an open health care system. an opened economy where you don't have political top-down decisions. those are the kind of things that will work better for you. >> i want you to join in with what we are talking about here and the positive message and the constructive way forward to but also, if you can talk about the energy revolution. so many people who are responsible for it are from your state, talk about the energy revolution and what that will mean, not only for working class and t
counted because we had a $500 billion of savings out of medicare that is going to go to obamacare and of course we were strengthening medicare by $500 billion. having that as a part of the record, how can we say that medicare has strengthened? is medicare now stronger than it has ever been? >> i don't bb of the trust fund reveals anything about the future solvency of medicare. the facts on the ground are that in recent years the gap between the premiums into payroll taxes going in is $300 billion. >> that is a cash flow deficit. we get 10,000 beneficiaries every day and the absence of general reform that allow people to get the care that they need and deserve and abby slover cost growth it will fall under its own financial weight. >> for the secretary to affirm, $500 billion that isn't really chump change in the big picture of health care costs. i am getting comments from constituents in the district who medicare advantage folks now their benefits are being reduced. they are losing access to their preferred physicians. this is under the current system now. my question is how much
that is a treasure-trove for cybercriminals and identity thieves. further, the obamacare website interacts with the i.r.s. and social security administration databases thereby exposing americans to even greater risk of theft of their most private personal information. in their written testimony, these experts warn the following about the health care.gov website. quote, there are clear indicators that even basic security was not, not built into the healthcare.gov website, end quote. quote, the vast amount of healthcare.gov code also means asupplying industry standards, security practices is a task that can have no real chance of success. end quote. healthcare.gov, quote, creates massive opportunity for fraud, scams, deceptive trade practices, identity theft, and more, end quote. mr. speaker, these threats to american family finances prompted me to ask the panel of cybersecurity experts within, under obamacare, americans can seek compensation from the federal government for financial losses caused by use of healthcare.gov. in reply not one expert, not one indicated obamacare requires the federal govern
theosh avoided word obamacare. is that now -- >> i came out and talked about obamacare several times. >> i do not hear people using the word anymore. >> watchword? >> obamacare. >> i think you're going to sue me somewhere. [laughter] fine witht i am calling obamacare, the president is fine with it. we are focused on making sure that the care part is delivered to the americans that want it. whether it is the affordable care act, obamacare, or anything else, what matters to the president is that the benefits available to every american who gets covered through the exchanges, or have covered all the -- already, is delivered. or one of us who has insurance coverage already has benefits from the afford will care act, from obamacare. child between 18 and 26, that child is now able to stay on your insurance coverage, where before they were not. there are benefits when it comes insurers,bility of because of the afford will care act, throw you off the plan because of a pre-existing condition. benefits that will kick in once the exchanges cake and will be long. we are focused on the care and m
the wall street journal today. obamacare mission accomplished. i will not go it -- go through it again for our viewers. this briefing, did you get that sense? guest: it was not, because they get a huge emphasis on, we still have a lot of work to do, this is by no means a perfect system, we have got it to where we wanted, but there are still a lot of things that need to be fixed. this is still an ongoing process to make this thing work better and better. they still it knowledge there are a lot of parts of the website they need to continue to work on. saying, yes, we did it, everything is great, and we will take off now. host: what is the measure of success to look at? guest: insurance companies, are they getting the accurate information they need in order to enroll people and give them their coverage, receive the payments from those getting subsidies, and that will be -- starting january 1, how many people will actually have insurance under this law, how may people are successful going to the doctor and paying the bills, insurance companies getting copayments and all of those things. we
. let's spend one moment on one issue. obamacare according to disagree in court is a tax. the president has used the law and has said i'm going to postpone that tax for this group first, big business. and i'm gointhen i'm going to pe attacks for six weeks for individuals. and then i'm going to postpone a year for small businesses. he's postponing taxes. since i have no life i have read obamacare. i do not see that in there where the president is getting the authority to postpone attacks, but he doesn't. if he has the legal authority to do that, which i doubt, what is to prevent him from going and looking at the irs code which is a mess. i don't know any american who thinks the code is a good bill. but rather than fix if we just make it bigger every year. so the president goes to the irs and says this group of businesses they are just having a bad year. or we can use the energy companies on the other end. i'm just going to postpone this paying income tax for a year. why? because i said so. or i will take this group and do something similar. rather than pay 38% of your just going to pay 2
shot. if you still don't like obamacare -- and i know you don't -- [laughter] -- even though it's built on market-based ideas of choice and competition in the private sector, then you should explain how, exactly, you'd cut costs, and cover more people, and make insurance more secure. you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for, not just what you're against. [applause] that way we can have a vigorous and meaningful debate. that's what the american people deserve. that's what the times demand. it's not enough anymore to just say we should just get our government out of the way and let the unfettered market take care of it -- for our experience tells us that's just not true. [applause] look, i've never believed that government can solve every problem or should -- and neither do you. we know that ultimately our strength is grounded in our people -- individuals out there, striving, working, making things happen. it depends on community, a rich and generous sense of community that's at the core of what happens at thearc here every day. you understand that turning back rising
questions. what are your thoughts on obamacare? [laughter] too many questions. i had to ask you three. >> i may need a couple hours. it is unraveling on its own effects. i was telling jonathan that i think it is not that government is inherently stupid, although that is a debatable point.

standards. you said, you think that obamacare is bad and the implementation of the common core is far worse. who is to blame and anyone stepping up to fix this? >> i am not a big believer in this. i am a union leader and i could easily say, this one, this one, this one. if we are not rolling up our sleeves and actually engaging, then we are in the same debate over who cares about kids. i care about kids, no, i care about kids. that is a debate we are having. let me just say, this is what i think is happened. we do education policy by precedent. i think the governor and the state she's right about saying, let's figure out a set of standards that are aligned to what kids need to know about the global economy. they move pretty fast about it. we were engaged with them and brought a lot of teachers to critique the materials and things like that. that is what matters. the public was not involved, parents were not involved, districts were not involved. it felt like, because of the speed at which it went, and because the federal government incentivized through race to the top. -- the race to the to
on the minds of america right now, as they witness the utter disaster of a rollout of obamacare. as the gentleman knows, his constituents as well as mine, are faced with higher premiums, faced with the realization now that the president has broken a major promise. when he had said to the american people that they could keep their health care plans if they liked it. and we know now that wasn't true. so people are having to go and figure out what kind of plans are actually there for them. the administration has claimed this week the website is working just fine. we know good and well the back end of that website is not working just fine. i'm glad that people are able, maybe, to get on and see what's there. we don't really know because of the lack of transparency as to how successful the signups and enrollments are being. we do know, though, that most americans in the individual plan arena are facing higher premiums . those that have had to give up their plans are facing higher premiums, and plans that they don't necessarily choose that they are now forced to have because of the op

. under obamacare, this arbitrary selection of 50, defining a large corporation, does not fit with the burial spirit. -- with the entrepreneurial spirit. do you think we should increase cost that of fte would trigger the affordable care act? andou believe 50 is too low we, as congress, should increase it to a number higher than 50. you need the facts and circumstances test on who has the today control. if you increase it to 50, the same thing happens beyond 50, 200.er it is 75, 150, the 30 hour rule, i believe increasing the number would alleviate the number of issues. it is a legislative fix. there would have to be a change to the statute itself. comeshink the challenge in that every industry cannot be put in the same box. of any the evaluation organization that tries to encapsulate multiple industries, there are always different materials for the industries. with a at an industry , iewhat mobile workforce think the costs are going to be significantly higher for the same number of employees, the same number of ftes, as it would for a larger workforce. >> thank you. >> yes, i

in terms of growing government is causing all this anguish. this is coupled with obamacare, which is a total nightmare. i premium has gone up. this is ridiculous. what is usually created is the new underclass, the educated poor. the man does not care about free enterprise. wants government in charge of everything. it is a different philosophy than a republican would have. that if romney were elected, we would be coming out of this by now. with all this government regulation and the government goes -- the government knows best and comes first, as sky has never worked hard. arrogant,most polarizing, racist president we have ever had. the only people making excuses for him are the morally weak and politically correct liberal white apologists and the plaque -- and the black racists in the name of political correctness. everyone else is realistic enough to see the frog has dissipated and this guy is a total fraud. he will go down as one of the worst presidents this country has ever had. he does not care about the pain the americans are going through. >> joe from new york, good morning.
-- enrollment surge or no enrollment surge, the next obamacare challenge is a big one. how will the white house make sure people with canceled policies get new coverage by january 1? at the rate sign-ups are going, even with the speedier and newly functioning obamacare website, there is a daft distance to peoplebefore for to five get coverage.ple thatr: it is unfortunate a few country there is people willing to sacrifice. i am talking about some white people. maybe republican, maybe democrats. it is both sides. if mandela is left in public, i'm going to make the trip to south africa and be proud of it. host: james, thanks for the call. warsaw, indiana, tricia. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. we canwanted to say that nelsonrn a lot from mandela's life. watching him struggle, watching him fight what he knew was right and being oppressed and being in prison and still holding onto what he knew was right, i think that is what we have to do in america. andave to take his example carry it through every country. for us, we need to do that with our government. we need to stand up for
an income of about $42,000 a year. obamacare, the company she was working for drop the insurance for the employees. hour.kes $10.35 an she tried to get on the federal program and could not do it. they were supposed to call her back but did not call her back. the cheapest we found is $900 a month. that is nearly $12,000 a year. i have a subsidy with my social security. they take out around $100 on that and the subsidy is around $150. is over 1/3, just for my health insurance, not counting my automobile and everything else. what are we going to do? there just ain't no way we can afford that kind of insurance cost. insurance,the health the prices you are talking it is, does that include -- hard to know. i couldn't tell if that included tax credits that might be eligible for based on their income. if it does and that is more than they can afford, there is no answer to that. is health insurance. if the premiums may cap more income, you dour not have to comply with the individual mandate. that calleruld do more specific information. care obama's new health fix-it man. a post just went
of obamacare has to do with a long- standing observation and a plan around it that we need young people to enroll. oft is true regardless the affordable care act. it was always going to be true. it was always going to be important. it was always the case, as i think we have discussed here in this room. younger people are more likely to wait to later stages of the enrollment process to enroll. this is part of a broader effort that we will be undertaking to make sure that americans around the country understand the advantages of having insurance and the need to have it and all of the options available to them. i will leave it to folks on the political side who have looked at that. we are in pretty stark disagreement with some of the polls, particularly on youth and the afford will care act. there are good polls and apples. -- and bad polls. debate?ere a fear of basically, the percentage of americans who want to repeal the affordable care act has not changed at all. i think that speaks to the kind of entrenched political nature of this debate over the past several weeks. it is always been
